Getting to do something new October 1, 2012Posted by johnhemry in Uncategorized.
One of the things I really like about the Lost Stars series (first book Tarnished Knight due out this week) is that it lets me do things I haven’t been able to do in the Lost Fleet books because of the scale of action and the characters. In the sequel to Tarnished Knight I just worked out a big scene with protecting a convoy, figuring out how to do that in space, but interwoven with the action is the relationship between an older, experienced Alliance captain and a younger, quickly promoted Kommodor in Midway’s service. The two women, very recently enemies, have to work together and share their skills in order to get through the crisis safely. I really enjoyed exploring that relationship and figuring out how it would develop under that kind of stress.
